When Google developed Google Plus I knew it was important to business and got busy building a profile there! This is Part Of Social SEO.
Google Plus Research
The relevance of Google Plus social network was not lost on me! What I want to share with you now is a study that was released by Social Metrics that backs up what I’ve been sharing about Google Plus and SEO! When they researched and compared pages that ranked well in search and which did not, the most important factor in regards to social signal was the number of +1 a page received!
If you look closely at the study Facebook has a big factoring in rank as well but it was the combination of likes, shares, and comments. A Google Plus plus one alone was at the top! 45 percent of web page ranking is related to social media! That means the biggest part of SEO is how well it is received on social media!
What does this mean? Well for one if you don’t have a Google plus profile get busy! Another thing is get active if you DO have one! Lastly, make sure you are sharing your pages and post on Google plus and getting those all important +1’s!
